Anne Davison UK has 12 major joints elbows, wrists, both shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles and three knuckles replaced.
Charles Wedde USA , who has rheumatoid arthritis, also had 12 major joints replaced between and Rheumatoid arthritis RA is an autoimmune illness. In this group of illnesses, the immune system, which normally defends and protects, turns inward attacking many different normal body tissues. When the primary targets are the joints, patients develop inflammatory arthritis. If not treated early and appropriately, the result is persistent joint inflammation and progressive joint damage.
All ages of people can be affected, even young children. However, there has been ongoing research in autoimmune diseases and new therapies. Within my 25 years as a qualified rheumatologist, I have observed a major change in the outcome of this illness. From the introduction of Methotrexate over 20 years ago to the recent introduction of more specific inhibitors of the autoimmune system with drugs termed biologics , there has been a steady improvement in disease control and better quality of life.
We are now able to talk to our patients about Remission or absence of any sign or symptom of the illness. We do not yet have the therapeutic tools to talk about cure but it is truly an exciting time to be a rheumatologist. The Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital team in Edmonton has been instrumental in helping many individuals cope with the impact of their illness over the years.
This team includes nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, recreational therapists, and physicians.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Guide
It has been an honour to work with these dedicated staffs for so many years. I have also had the honour and privilege to be involved in the lives and care of many wonderful people, especially Rob Morton, the author of this fine memoir. I have admired his courage; his determination to enjoy all aspects of life that those without arthritis often take for granted; and his resilience in pursuing a different path if the arthritis creates a roadblock. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Rob for sharing his journey with me.
I am delighted with this book and its honesty and I know it will become a great source of inspiration and a beneficial aid for those suffering from this terrible illness. I gratefully appreciate all the assistance I received from my caregivers at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Their continuous effort towards my physical recovery, answering all my relentless questions, and their dauntless tolerance, afforded me a quick and speedy recovery.
The medical staff, which includes my family doctors in Mayerthorpe, Dr.
- Animal Farm (MAXNotes Literature Guides).
- Taken by her fathers enemy (a dubious erotic love story).
- On This Holy Night: The Heart of Christmas.
Liam Griffin and Dr. Robert Bernier, my orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James MaHood, and especially my rheumatologist, Dr.
Sharon Le Clercq, have all been supremely responsible for my recovery and for my continued good health. Gailene Kastelic, a nurse and a very good friend in Mayerthorpe has always been there for me, as well as JoAnne Wilson, a long time friend, nurse and angel. These are two people that Sandy and I know we can always count on no matter what impossible favour we ask of them. I wish to acknowledge Sheri Banks, my psychologist for her insight and therapy that allowed me to overcome the deepest part of my recovery. I received a lot of support from my teaching staff during my illness and throughout my recovery.
The staffs at Sangudo High School and Mayerthorpe High School have encouraged me to complete this book and I will never forget those friends who visited me in the hospital during some tough times: Eric, Shelly, Kelle and Paul. Two members from my days in the Fort Henry Guard and with the RCMP Pipe Band, Steve Prichard and Chris Beamish continually surprise me with their support and never-failing assistance, when a drum has to be carried up a hill in Halifax or a book needs to be dropped off at the hospital. I will always remember their visits and their spirit-lifting jokes when I needed a boost.
To all my friends and family in St. Catharines, as well as Lee and Mary, and Donna Curtis who continually bugged me about this book get writing , and who typed several of the first chapters initially , thank you so much for your cards, letters and phone calls. This book would never been completed without the hard work and effort of my typist Pauline Roth. Her efforts have been truly incredible, especially under the watchful eye of the boss. My mother, June and my father, Mel have always been there for me and I love them and will always appreciate their understanding and support.
Finally, my son Drew and my wife Sandy, the two most precious people in the world.
Pharmacological and non-pharmacological management of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Their love, support and companionship has saved my life, and it is for them that I continue to fight on. I used to stand out on the deck at night and stare at the stars. They are especially bright during the winter, and the Alberta sky is so vast and clear. I wanted one star to become bigger and brighter than the others. It would start to move and I would track it with my eye until it became obvious that this star was really a space ship! As it loomed closer and closer, the air began to vibrate, the snow quickly vaporized, the dogs ran and hid under the deck as a wide spectrum of blue haze slowly illuminated the night sky.
Then a flash of white light, and a sudden fury - I was instantly sucked up into the space ship like a speck of dust through a huge vacuum hose!
